Many black communities in Chicago lie in close proximity rail transportation, yet more than fifty percent of people are out of work in some neighborhoods. So creating and securing jobs for our community is a core function for Blacks in Green. That’s why we’re committed to Jobs to Move America.
Naomi Davis, Founder, Blacks in Green (BIG)
The BlueGreen Alliance is pleased to be part of the Jobs to Move America coalition and to help demonstrate that investing in our transit infrastructure will create good jobs, build a 21st century skilled manufacturing workforce and the next generation of clean transportation technology in America.
David Foster, Executive Director, BlueGreen Alliance (BGA)
